    Life is hard period...........

    Benthere

    I was late on congratulating you...I have not been on the computer as much due to the dreaded honey-doooos !

    Durn those wives.......lol

    This is part of your journey.  You need to pay attention to the life lessons... once these lessons have been learned you move on to new ones... If it didn't hurt and wasn't hard, you would not be learning.


    ... And by the way, no one's life is easy, even if they proclaim otherwise.


    Good Luck to you.

    If it wern't hard to be a man then why not become a women, i sure that would make you feel better about life..

    Does one detect a bit of sarcasm here?!? A t-shirt from 'Wal-Mart suggests: "SARCASM is the body's natural defense against STUPIDTY!"

    So who do you think has an easy life? No one I know!

    My life today is a blast. I recently have some health issues but they too shall pass, I hope. I do what I want, when and if I wan't to do them. I put my time in already, now it's all me.

    Umbriel, I told my last boss to shove it. I quit working at 51, ten years later and no regrets. The job was literally killing me. Four packs a day and drinking enough beer to float the Queen Mary.

    Is your real name John Edwards?  If not, it's not that bad being a man.

    Try being a woman for a month and then re-think that question.

    It is hard just BEING.
    I think life is hard because you are rallying against your circumstances. Go with the flow, make plans of how to overcome the difficulties that are realistic, and focus on the goals.


     People have responsibilities and expectations, either self-induced or placed upon by others.  Some of us have the desire to please, or unreasonable standards we think we have to meet, and we always fall short of meeting or pleasing.  The "world" goes about with its disasters and wars, and incompetent fools in charge.  Economies affect everyone, not just men.  I know I think, "If only..." life would be much easier.  I'm not master of my fate, but I do have some say in the situation. Look in the mirror.

    Well said!

    Hi doo, you need to send an "OK" to admin for me to get your email address.

    It is not always easy to do something well.  You are probably very good at it; and that's why it seems difficult. A few years from now, it wont seem so tough; hang in there and keep doing well.  peace

    Well, life may be hard but planning a wedding is easy...


     


    What would it be like if men were put in charge of organizing weddings?


                             * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *



    There would be a "Rehearsal Dinner Kegger" until the cops showed up.


    Bridesmaids would wear matching blue jean cut-offs and halter tops.


    They would have NO tan lines and more skin showing than not.


    Tuxes would have team logos on the back and the Nike shoes would have matching team colors.


    June weddings would be scheduled around basketball play-offs.


    Vows would mention cooking and sex specifically, but omit that "forsaking all others" part.


    The couple would leave the ceremony in a souped up '73 Charger or some other Mopar with racing tires and flame designs on the side of the car. Better yet, a Harley!


    Idiots who tried to dance with the bride (unless they were really old) would get punched in the head.


    Big, slobbery dogs would be eligible for the role of "Best Man".


    There would be "Tailgate Receptions".


    Outdoor weddings would be held during sporting events at half-time or between innings.


    Ceremonies would be short and honeymoons would be long.


    Ceremonies and honeymoons would be inexpensive compared to the cost of the bachelor party. The cost of strippers and liquor really do add up.


    Men wouldn't ask, "Well, what do you think, dear? The burgundy or the wine colored napkins?" They'd just grab extras from their local pub, tavern or donut store.


    Favors would be matchbooks and cigars. Better yet, free drink passes at the local lounge.


    The bride's dress would show cleavage, her navel, and be form-fitted to her arse.


    Instead of a sit-down dinner or a buffet, there would be a hog roast or buckets of chicken, pizza and plenty of b-b-q.


    No one would bother with that "Veil Routine". But they would insist that the garter be as high up on her leg as it could go.


    The bridal bouquet would be recycled from a previous funeral/wedding (what's the difference) or something.


    Invitations would read as follows...


    Tom (Dick or Harry) is getting the old ball and chain... He's getting married. He either: A) Knocked her up B) Couldn't get a different roommate or C) Caved in to her ultimatum... Please meet the woman who will cook and clean for him. For the rest of his life at Soldier Field Stadium. On the 50 Yard Line At Half-time during Sunday's Game. Please join us at the Moonlight Lounge after the game For Beer, Nachos and Pizza. Oh yeah... BYOB!

    Cute.

    that was clever, Dardeigh. You should send that in to the Readers Digest.

    My heart bleeds for you! I hope your helping your wife with the relatively easy task of being female, you know things like working whilst still maintaining a house, meeting everyone else s expectations cooking and cleaning after an often less than efficient husband, and of course doing it all with a smile......you poor thing!!!!

     


    Men usually have to make the lion's share of  money to support the family. Many women don't work at all but stay at home and take care  of their children. To me, taking care of children seems a lot easier.


     

    ed shank

    Wrong, no way I would take over a woman's responsibility. I don't know how they do it.
    Deleted User

    LOL .. some Australian woman earn more money that makes them the lion lol. Rarely are there stay at home mums anymore its not affordable :P..
    Try looking after kids, it sucks, work is so easy compared to chasing snotty nose kids.
    Give me a 7 till 3 job any day ..
    Deleted User

    LOL Umbriel you must feel different in low attitude? do you feel faint? LOL
    doolittle

    Taking care of the Children and Home is one of the hardest jobs to do! Raising kids with morals, values, a good attitude...along with homework, taxi service...the list is too long to write!
    itsmee

    I have a home daycare/preschool. I had about ten children enter my playroom every morning. It was very hard work but I was my own boss and I made fairly good money. I liked it: There was cooking, music, art, lots of outside activities, and I always had a helper.
    At the end of my workday I saw the moms drag in to pick up their children only to take them home and start their second job - childcare, cooking, bed time rituals. That was hard work.
    A lot of time father's helped out but not always. There were a lot of divorces.
    After my job ended I wrote stories about it. : )
    Ann

    Itsmee, most women today have to work and raise a family at the same time. That is hard work. I am glad you had a different experience.
    millie111

    Nice one Ed!!:)

    Did anyone tell you it would be easier?  We are all in the same boat of life.

    Are you for real??? It's hard being you, I know. And no, I don't.

    My late husband, Joe, would say, " It's because of that macho bullshit " .  He used to say that.

    Ah..this reminds me of a song..."Nobody knows the trouble I've seen, Nobody knows my sorrow"  This was sung as a spiritual during slave days...lets see:  First African men and woman were literally pulled away from their families and friends- put on ships that were overcrowded, had no sanitation, and little food.  Many were strapped down, others were forced to row the huge wooden ship- for hours at a time without food or water.  They land in America where they are sold- many of the the villiagers they knew are sold to different owners.  Then they land at the plantation- where they are forced to labor all day in the hot sun without water.  They live in shacks, get scraps to turn into a meal, and must follow all orders from the owner- or, they may lose a foot or hand (chopped off) without any medicine- they have to figure out what to do to heal. If they get sick or old they are no longer of value and are killed.  Any woman they "marry" and the children they have can be sold at any time....  So, are you starting to understand that...our lives arent easy but we aren't living in hell like the slaves did???

    Dardaigh

    Perfect answer, Doo! Geez, it was a terrible, terrible period in the world's history! :(
    Bob/PKB

    Well, if your answer doesn't put things into perspective for just about everybody, who knows what will. Thank you for giving us something to consider before we whine about stuff.

    For procreation purposes.

    doolittle

    I'm lost...life is hard because men have sex??????
    Clonge

    Doolittle: I can post a link to an appropriate site, but there are kids here. Hint: "hard" has something to do with "____!"
    doolittle

    LOL- say no more!

    Be A true Man and Life should never bee Hard...don't be a TK!!!!!!!!!!
